Officials Helping Locals Navigate Flooded Lake Monroe

Last updated on Wednesday, April 23, 2008

(BLOOMINGTON) - State officials are ferrying people to their boats because of near-record water levels at Lake Monroe.

The heavy spring rains have submerged boat ramps and roads. Fishermen are excited, though, because the high waters have allowed them to reach sections of the lake that previously were inaccessible.

Officials are urging boaters to be careful as they approach the lake's new shorelines because there could be trees, bushes or even fences just below the surface.
